Artwork for Jo Dewar

The Art of Giving

Linen Vessel


How would you describe the work you do and why?: 

I am a mixed media artist using acrylics, inks, graphite, pastels and hand printed collage papers to create colour and texture. I love to find new materials to work with and how to apply them onto different substrates. Working in 2D and 3D makes my work more diverse and to work a painted canvas into a vessel is a lovely way to view a piece of artwork in different aspects.

For you what does being an artist mean?: 

To be an artist is to observe what is around you and to explore different processes and techniques to enhance the work. We are surrounded by an array of shapes, colours and forms and it is a joy to capture these in your work.

Describe what you call yourself/your practice?: 

Mixed Media Artist
